” I will charge N95,000 for the one that requires human parts. Considering that you are thirty years old, there is no issue. If you are not up to a particular age, you can not utilize it.

He declared the N20,000 was inadequate and highlighted the threats of terminating the routine midway. The cash was sent out however with an arrangement that just a balance of N10,000 would be paid when the beauty was all set.
